And when will Hoogle 4 be more than vapourwear? :) I guess the answer
is 'whenever people stop asking me and start contributing patches' ;)

Seriously, though, this sounds perfect. In fact, in terms of writing
Emacs integration, I think enough information is there to be able to
use the current hoodoc interface (which involves knowing the module
it's defined in, but not the package). In terms of a human interface,
though, I think having to specify the module is too much of a burden,
so I'll wait on Hoogle 4.

Thanks for letting us know about hoodoc.
